DeKALB – Feed’em Soup will hold a rummage sale July 25-27 at its headquarters, 122 S. First St. in DeKalb, with 100 percent of proceeds supporting its mission to feed the hungry in the local community.

The sale will be 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. Thursday and Friday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. Donations for the sale can be dropped off at the headquarters from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. any Wednesday and 7 p.m. to 3 a.m. every Thursday, Friday or Saturday before the sale.

Donations of plastic hangers, handled paper shopping bags, paper wrap, bubble wrap and other packing materials are appreciated. Breakable items should be marked.
